I was born in Fort Worth and have remained in the metroplex my entire life. I went to college at the University of Texas in Arlington, where I earned my Bachelor's of Arts in History and my Master's Degree in Teaching, with a specialization in reading. Before starting a family, I taught Kindergarten and First Grade in Grapevine-Colleyville ISD. Once my children were old enough to attend CCA, we joined the school, where I love teaching First Grade! It is also an honor to serve as the English/Language Arts Specialist for our Early Childhood and Elementary students.
When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? I have always wanted to be a mom and a teacher. I'm living my dream!
Why do you choose to work at CCA? My niece and nephew attended CCA from Kindergarten-Graduation. I had the incredible joy of watching them grow into young adults who love the Lord, can think around corners, speak eloquently, and walk confidently. My husband and I want the same thing for our children, so we are thrilled to be a part of this incredible community. I love working at CCA because our staff is like a family. We truly love one another, support one another, and sharpen one another.
What is one fun fact about you? I never really cared much about football, but I married a great guy from Wisconsin and love the Green Bay Packers! Go Pack Go!
What is your favorite book of all time? Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is my all-time favorite book! My First Grade teacher read it to my class, and I LOVED it! That was my first happy memory with reading. My goal is to share that love of reading with my students.
What is one thing that can instantly make your day better? I love surprises!
What do you like to do for fun? Read, plant flowers, spend time with my family and friends, and bake
